What Method should I use to clean carpets

Which cleaning method is best?  Many professionals claim to have an exclusive method.  Only they can use this method and it is the only method you should allow into your home.  Doesn’t that sound like a trap to lure you into paying for a gimmick?


Consider this:  If you had invented the world’s best cleaning machine or method, you would sell it to all the cleaners, not just a few.  That way you would make the most money and be successful.  Whenever someone tells me they have an exclusive piece of equipment or method, I become suspicious.  If nobody else has it, maybe nobody else wants it?


The leading method of carpet cleaning is hot water extraction.  That is what the top carpet manufactures recommend.  And, that’s what my company uses.
